Part of our Listening Room Series.
The Listening Room is a brand new series of live sessions in the Glass Studio. Artists of all kinds will perform fresh material and discuss the ideas that shape their work.
Bristol songwriter Davey Woodward talks to Richard Jones from Tangent Books about post punk underpants, council houses and DIY guitar tuning, amongst other things. He’ll also be trying out some new songs, possibly writing them as he goes along.
Davey Woodward has spent 4 decades contributing to the alternative indie music scene. His band The Brilliant Corners came to prominence in the ‘80s as part of the C86 scene playing ‘jangly pop’, three chord noise and country music. The Experimental Pop Band, championed by John Peel, took eclecticism to extremes, mixing electronic sounds and samples with organic sounds, often with Davey’s Joycean lyrics adding an undercurrent of darkness. His current musical projects are the Winter Orphans and an alternative rock band called Karen. Both bands are finishing albums that will be dropping sometime in 2020.
